Dalmally Golf Club’s inaugural ladies’ putting and prosecco evening proved a memorable night.
This free event attracted almost 30 ladies who socially gathered to have a fun
evening with the fizz flowing and the putts dropping.
Lady members and guests hotly contested three putting challenges: match play, nearest the pin and blind woman’s bluff.
After the preliminary rounds, the match play final was a closely contested match between Rena Ritchie and Rhona MacIntyre with Rena narrowly winning one up on the last hole.
Congratulations to Helen Hennessy for managing the first hole in one in the competition.
Nearest the pin was a long-putting competition held on the ninth hole green. This proved to be a major challenge with Liz McKay coming first with a great putt, only inches from the hole. Runner up was Jade Brown.
The final challenge, blind woman’s bluff, was a variation on the long hole, nearest the pin competition, this time with contestants blindfolded. A great putt from Hazel Moran took the prize, demonstrating that sometimes closing your eyes, hitting and hoping works. Close runner up was Alicia MacKechnie.
Topping off the evening, Rena Ritchie took the prize in the style competition with her bobbly ears hat stealing the show.
The evening concluded with a fun prizegiving hosted by Judith McGregor, ladies match secretary. Judith thanked the gents’ members, Graeme MacKechnie, Jim Livingstone and David McGregor who helped out as match starters and in the bar.
The ladies donated generously to the club’s chosen charity for the event, the Dove Centre in Oban.
